Boot Socks

I don't show but I am trying to find some "over the calf" boot socks to wear when riding. I wear tall western riding boots and am having a heck of a time finding socks to wear with them. Any suggestions or favorites? Oh and my feet freeze in the winter so any suggestions on winter socks in addition to regular socks would be great too.

best socks ever, thin wool/poly blend. not to thick not too thin. Come in different sizes, and they stay up without cutting off your blood flow.

I buy socks made for soccer players, they are to the knee and fit well. Nike & Adidas both have sweat wicking type for warm weather. In the winter I wear my hubby's battery socks made for hunting

Best socks i have ever had- Darn Tough merino wool socks!
They're pricey, but well worth the money!
I wear mine year round, whether i am out hunting, working, playing, or riding.
They help my feet stay warm in winter, cool in summer, dry and comfy all year long.

I use the military socks too. If you know an active-duty soldier, they can get them for you from the shop on a base.

Oh good idea about getting them on base. I do know a few active military. Also I've wanted to try the Zocks but they look pretty thin. I don't need big thick socks but for the price I would like them to last a little while.

i Wear knee highs they seem to work fine and you can change the hight depending on the sock.

Zocks are super thin and come up usually to the knee or above. I ride english, and with my tall boots a wear a pair of mid-calf socks underneath my Zocks. They do usually last a while, but don't sound like they'd be to helpful, I'd go with the Military socks!
